Kate Somerville RetAsphere Micro Peel, $90 at Amazon
Sephora reviewer atomicdarling: "This is a brilliant combination of ingredients. I use it every other night and my skin looks fabulous! My skin has never been better!"
Sephora reviewer karen398: "I've been looking for something to smooth out lines, even out tone and not irritate my skin. I've tried a number of brands, some expensive and some drugstore. This is the best so far and the value is great at any price — a cheap product that doesn't work is expensive. I have been using this for three weeks. My skin feels great in the morning and sometimes I use it multiple nights in a row, even with my fair, sensitive skin. I am noticing fewer lines and my skin has a really soft, smooth texture to it. I have had zero irritation and no breakouts. This one is the winner!"
This peel uses both alpha and beta hydroxy fruit acids to deeply exfoliate skin, leaving it softer, brighter and more youthful. Plus, the scent is divine.

La Prairie Cellular 3-Minute Peel, $220 at Nordstrom
TotalBeauty.com reviewer kristenp76: "This is a pretty awesome peel. Doesn't smell nasty at all. It actually has a nice scent to it, but who cares what it smells like? It's on and off in three minutes and my skin hasn't looked better in years! I'd been eyeing this product for a few years and wonder what took me so long to finally buy it. I could tell the difference in the first time I used it. My makeup goes on so much smoother and I even look pretty decent without makeup!
Nordstrom reviewer gingertea8: "I use this twice a week in conjunction with the hydrating mask and it is like a mini-facial. It gets rid of dry spots and clears up blemishes more quickly ... It exfoliates well, but gently."
This overnight peel contains a potent combo of hydrating sodium hyaluronate and exfoliating urea for a non-irritating deep peel that refreshes and renews skin.

Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads, $75 at Amazon
Sephora reviewer daL6: "I love this peel. I cut the pads in half and there is more than enough product for each use. I love that you put it on at night and leave it on and can apply moisturizer on top of it. My skin was noticeably different after the first few nights. My blemishes healed faster, it prevents new ones from forming, discoloration from scars lightened, and my skin feels firmer and smoother. Love love love this product."
Sephora reviewer Laynebr: "Where has this product been all my life?!?! This is one of the best exfoliating pads I have ever used. Hands down makes my skin look airbrushed. Helps with pores and with skin texture issues. Keeps blemishes at bay and evens out the skin."

Sephora reviewer nylecoj: "I have completely stopped using physical exfoliators since I heard they aren't good for your skin. I've been using this instead and it seriously leaves my face so incredibly smooth. Helps clear up acne also! My makeup goes on amazingly after. I really have nothing bad to say about this product! I would definitely repurchase when I run out."
Use this two-step system twice a week for optimal results. It uses AHAs to retexture and resurface skin, nixing dead skin cells and bringing newer skin cells to the surface. Wrinkles, fine lines and skin's texture are all improved.
